WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is renewing his threat to veto a congressional resolution revoking his declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

Trump had declared an emergency to try to circumvent Congress to access more money for his promised border wall.

The Senate is scheduled to vote Thursday on the resolution, with many Republicans expected to join Democrats in disapproving the declaration.

Trump tweeted early Thursday about “the big National Emergency vote today” in the Senate. He said, “I am prepared to veto, if necessary,” and called the situation at the border “a National Security and Humanitarian Nightmare.”

Trump has not yet vetoed a bill.

Overturning a presidential veto requires a two-thirds vote in the House and Senate, but there aren’t enough votes to do so on the border resolution.
